Oil tanker aluminum plate

The oil tanker aluminum plate is mainly 5000 series and 6000 series. The main element of 5000 series is Mg, and the 6000 series is the Mg, Si. The alloy no. is including 5052, 5083, 5454, 5754.

The 5052 aluminum plate is Al-Mg aluminum plate, which is the most widely used for anti-corrosive, with high strength and corrosion resistance. but it cannot be strengthened by heat treatment, the plasticity is good when it is hardened in semi-cold. When the cold is hardened, the plastic is low and can be polished.

The alloys with high strength and heat treated in the aluminum alloy of 5083 has good machine-ability, corrosion resistance and welding properties.It is widely used in traffic vehicles, such as ships, aircraft, vehicles and pressure vessels (tank cars, refrigerated vehicles, refrigerated containers), etc.

The 5754 aluminum plate has the characteristics of moderate strength, good corrosion resistance, weld-ability and easy to process. It is a typical alloy in Al-Mg alloy. 5754 aluminum alloy plates with different heat treatment status are the main materials used in automobile manufacturing (car door, mould, seal) and tin making industry.

The advantage of oil tanker aluminum plate

1. The light weight
 more economical and practical, low density, high strength. It is more than 4 tons lighter than similar steel tank truck and 20% lighter more than steel tank truck. Because of the light weight of aluminum plate tank car, the fuel consumption and tire wear are both reduced during the transportation process, and reducing the daily operating expenses and maintenance costs.

2. High Corrosion resistance
The aluminum plate is with acetone, benzene, gasoline and diesel, kerosene, glacial acetic acid and other food in most chemical medium and has good compatibility, there is no need to do the anti-corrosion surface metal treatment, the car body will not rust, the appearance is durable, easy to clean.15-20 years is the typical life of aluminum plate tank car.

3. Good Ductility
Improve safety eliminate hidden trouble, the tank body use aluminum plate, the ductility is good, the strength is high. Oil is an inflammable and explosive dangerous goods, it is easy to be heat-expansion and cold-contraction when on the condition of extremely cold or extremely hot. The common oil tanker is with low ductility in such an environment prone to explode, the aluminum oil tanks, greatly improving the security.

4. High Recovery rate
 the aluminum material has very high collection value, saves the operation cost of the enterprise.

5. Good electrical conductivity
The good electrical conductivity of aluminum plate reduces the accumulation of static electricity in the tank. When there is a collision or tilting, it will be no sparks to eliminate the hidden danger of fire or explosion.
